Smoking Cessation

One Session to stop

Smoking cessation is the process of stopping smoking tobacco, tobacco smoke contains Nicotine and can cause dependence.

Nicotine often makes the process of quitting difficult.

In the United States about 70% of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50% report having tried to do so in the past year.

Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide. Tobacco cessation significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as coronary heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer. Due to its link to many chronic diseases, cigarette smoking has been restricted in many public areas.

Many strategies can be used for smoking cessation, including abruptly quitting without assistance (“cold turkey”) Most smokers who try to quit do so without assistance. However, only 3-6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful long-term.

There are more than 7,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke. More than 70 of those chemicals are linked to cancer. Some can cause heart disease, lung disease, or other serious health problems, too. Most of the substances come from the burning tobacco leaves themselves, not from additives included in cigarettes (or other tobacco products).

Some of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke include:

  • Nicotine (the addictive drug that produces the effects in the brain that people are looking for)
  • Hydrogen cyanide.
  • Formaldehyde.
  • Lead.
  • Arsenic.
  • Ammonia
  • Benzene.

E-cigarettes and similar devices

E-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) have become extremely popular in recent years, especially among younger people. They are sometimes used as substitutes for cigarettes or other tobacco products, but for many people, they are the first tobacco product used.

Makers of e-cigarettes and other ENDS often claim the ingredients are safe. But the aerosols (mixtures of very small particles) that these products produce can contain addictive nicotine, flavourings, and a variety of other chemicals, some known to be toxic or to cause cancer.

The levels of many of these substances appear to be lower than in traditional cigarettes, but the amounts of nicotine and other substances in these products can vary widely because they are not standardized. The long-term health effects of these devices are not yet known.

Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking is by implanting suggestions into your subconscious mind whilst you are in a trance. When you are in a trance you will not be asleep, you will be very relaxed and comfortable in an altered state of awareness. Your unconscious mind will be ready to accept suggestions that are beneficial for you and agreed before the hypnosis session is started.

If you are really ready to stop smoking, then one session should do the trick!

It’s amazing- 4 weeks and I have had absolutely no desire to smoke, after 30 years of believing I was addicted to it.. and using no nicotine replacement either!

Thank you once again, you have saved my life!



Hi Ray.

well all I can say is I think you are a magician after all! I have had absolutely no desire to smoke since hypnotherapy, it’s truly amazing.



Hello Ray,
just thought I’d email and let you know the stopping smoking has really worked and I’m so happy, thank you x


Morning Ray,
hope you’re well?

I have had a mare with the things that life throws at you but I haven’t gone back to the nicotine, so I just wanted to say thank you,

kind regards

I’m a 47 year male and I was a real heavy smoker of 40/50 cigarettes a day. I had just had enough, one the financial side but also worried about my health.

I was a little sceptical to be honest but was willing to try anything so went to see Ray and I have not touched a cigarette since, at times I had a slight fleeting thought of wanting one but it was really weird as I didn’t want one can’t put it into words really after I am not going back as come this far. Friends and family have seen such a change as if I didn’t have a cigarette every 20 minutes I would get agitated.

Hi Ray

Just wanted to say what a great day it was. I’ve not  felt so calm and relaxed for many a year. I’ve tried to stop smoking for many years with small successes but always ended up smoking again. The session with yourself has left me feeling great and ten days later still not smoking or even craving one. It’s almost like I never smoked.

Just wanted to say a big thankyou Ray. I can’t recommend you highly enough.

Kind regards Danny and his family, who don’t have to smell that cigarette odour on me anymore.

Hi Ray,
As promised, I wanted to just drop you an update following my hypnotherapy session last Wednesday 11th Jan.

First and foremost I am not smoking. I haven’t smoked a cigarette since I left your house. The first 2 days were not ‘easy’ . Will power is still required but the hypnotherapy definitely helped me dig that deep and to find the strength of mind to achieve this outcome.

The hypnotherapy itself was a very interesting experience. I had assumed a ‘hypnotic trance’ would be a sleep-like state which I would have no conscious memory of. It could not have been more different. I was entirely conscious throughout, yet incredibly relaxed. Ray has a very soothing and calming voice and definitely the skill to relax even the greatest skeptic. I remember sitting back in the chair , with him saying ‘you might feel your arms floating upwards’ and me thinking – you are going to be sadly disappointed… I am not feeling remotely ‘hypnotised’ … and yet … I spent 41 minutes waving my arms around like I was conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. All very strange, in a great way.

I will update in a month to see if my resolve is still holding. Thanks Ray. It’s very liberating to be freed from an habit. Not just for health but the time and money it has stolen from my life.

Hi Ray,

Hope you are well and enjoyed the rest of your weekend.

Just an update after having my hypnotherapy on Saturday morning. I haven’t had a cigerrette and haven’t given it a thought. The only time I think about having a cigarette is after I’ve eaten but it lasts for a split second and the feeling is good as quickly as it comes.

I am out for drinks on Saturday so that’ll be the real test for me. But feeling happy and confident with the results so thank you!

Kind regards,

Charlotte Jarred

Hope you are well ☺️
Just wanted to thank you , it’s been 5 months since I no longer smoke or crave cigarettes . Seemed to be impossible, but you made it happen. Couldn’t be any happier!
Thank you again, I’d definitely recommend your name to my friends !
